This week we looked at the story of ‘Rama and Sita’. The children re-enacted the story, drew pictures of the characters and created Rangoli patterns, using repeated shape patterns and created divas with the play dough and gems. We also discussed celebrations and the children shared a circle time where they talked about the celebrations they take part in with their family.
Next week is Anti-bullying week. The slogan this year is, ‘Friendship week.’ On Monday 12th November, the children are welcome to wear odd socks to school to help raise awareness for Anti-Bullying Week. Odd Socks Day is a fun opportunity for children to express themselves and appreciate individuality. On Friday 16th November, we are also having a pyjama day and asking for £1 contribution.

This week we looked at the Story ‘Room on the Broom.’ The children were role playing the story, drawing their favourite characters and making spells. They visited the wooded area to collect sticks and made their own wands and magic potions.
Next week we will be learning about Diwali - the Hindu Festival of Light. We will be recreating Rangoli patterns through drawing, painting and soft play blocks. We will listen to the story of Rama and Sita and make diva lamps from play dough and decorative materials. We would like to invite parents to come and talk about how you celebrate Diwali. Please talk to Reception staff if you are available to do so.
All children will be swimming next week.
